As mentioned earlier, the first few annual ski trips to Queenstown my very sons and I stayed at the fabulous Millbrook Resort, which is located just outside a small town called Arrowtown. It is located 20 km northeast of Queenstown. This is a historic gold mining town, with a population of over 2,000 people. There are several well-preserved buildings occupied by European and Chinese immigrants dating back from gold mining days.
I enjoyed very much the days when I took my then very young sons on our regular ski trips to New Zealand. This is where they learned how to ski for the first time- today they are advanced in their skiing and snowboarding. Now that we live in the UK, it is quite a long journey to go there.
New Zealand is without a doubt one of the most beautiful country in the world and is on my top ten list. I hope to return one day soon. Enjoy this beautiful country and safe travels!
